Allianz Risk Barometer survey – participants and methodology
The third annual Allianz Risk Barometer survey was conducted among risk consultants, underwriters, senior managers and claims experts within both AGCS and local Allianz entities in October and November 2013, with a focus on
the corporate insurance sector for both large industrial and mid-sized companies.
There were 405 respondents from a total of 33 countries. As multiple answers for up to two industries were possible, 557 answers were delivered.
Participants were asked to name industries about which they are particularly knowledgeable and then name up to three risks they believe to be of most importance for their clients within each industry. In addition, they identified risks they thought their clients significantly underestimate.
